|L. henryi is a vigorous clump-forming species, with purple-marked stems. Lance-shaped leaves, are scattered; the lower leaves have short stalks, the upper ones are crowded below the flowers. Late in the season, produces racemes of up to 10 (occasionally up to 20) faintly scented, deep orange flowers, spotted black. Easy to grow in neutral to alkaline soil in partial shade.
There are approximately 100 species of lilies. A bulbous perennial, that originated in wooded areas of Europe and Asia, the lily has become a favorite in gardens across the world noted for its trumpet-shaped flowers. Depending on the species, bloom time ranges from spring to fall. All lilies will prefer a well-drained location with rotted organic matter. Lilies require a cold period, so it is uncommon to find plants that thrive in zones 9-10. While most lilies prefer acidic soil, there are a few that do best in limey soils. Spring and fall are the best time to transplant, even though they can be transplanted any time. Provide ample moisture while flowering, but can take periods of drought otherwise.
